In 2003, the figure division was added to the IFBB Pro League and since then, no one has dominated the sport as convincingly as Nicole Wilkins did in 2011. For Starters, she became the only competitor to hold both the Figure Olympia and Figure International titles in the same calendar year. She also won three other contests, bringing her victory count to five and setting a new record for most wins in a single season. Having won the 2012 Figure International earlier this year, the two-time Figure Olympia champion (Wilkins also won in 2009) looks to defend her crown and enter the record books yet again by tying Davana Medina for most Figure) wins. With so much at stake, one thing is certain when the curtain goes up at the Orlean’s Arena in Las Vegas on Sept. 28-29: The gloves are coming off!
“My favorite part of competing is the mental and physical challenge. It teaches you a lot about self discipline, hard work, and going outside of your comfort zone. I also love the way I look and feel when I’m in contest shape.”
